And we chatted for a little bit, and I went back to my mowing, and AN HOUR LATER, when I was FINALLY done with the lawn, I had just gone inside to clean up, and there was a knock on the side door.
It was my neighbor L, back again, bearing a plate of dinner for me! And a cold beer!
"I thought you could use it after mowing that lawn!", she said.
I love my neighbors.
Oh! Oh! And how did she react to the House of Strange, you ask? (We've chatted plenty in the yard, but last night was the first time she'd spent any time IN the house.) Well, the display of deer bones took her a little aback, but other than that, she didn't seem too discomfited by my decorating scheme, and stayed to have a beer with me.
Hmmmm. Maybe I'm not a weird as I think.
Oh! And in other news, the lilies are blooming:
(Full disclosure: That's a pic from last year, at the old place. But the lilies made the move with me, and they are thriving in the new garden.)
These lilies smell just like bubblegum. I cut a bloom off last night and floated it in a dish in the kitchen, and now my whole house smells like Bubblelicious. Yum!
